After weeks of rehearsal and preparation, BVNW’s theater department will present two plays to the community, “Death by Design” and “Almost Maine,” this fall.

The first play this fall, “Death by Design,” will be presented Oct. 15 and 16 at 7 p.m. in BVNW’s Little Theater. Viewers can expect a murder mystery plotline from the play “Death by Design,” but it is more of a comedy than a drama according to senior Jackson Muccino, who is an actor in the play. Alongside Muccino, seniors Tasia Jewel and Alec Feather hold some of the leading roles among the many actors and actresses.

Muccino said he hopes more than anything that the actors can be true to their characters and represent the play accurately. 

“It’s supposed to be funny,” Muccino said. “I want people to laugh at it, I want people to laugh at me and laugh at what we’re doing.”

The second fall play, “Almost Maine,” will show Nov. 5 and 6 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 7 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. in BVNW’s Performing Arts Center. Junior Tatum Specht, an actress in the show,  said the play contains several different scenes set in Maine and involves characters falling in and out of love with the state throughout the play. Specht said the play is double cast, which means there are two separate casts that will perform on different days. In total, Specht said it has approximately 10 scenes.

Junior Tatum Specht is acting in “Almost Maine,” along with sophomore Kyle Feather. Specht said she thinks the play will have good results in the end.

“I think (the play) is going to be interesting,” Specht said. “Since it is a large cast, Landes accepted a lot of people, so it’s a wide range of actors, but I think it’s going to be good.”

Tickets for “Death by Design” can be purchased at the door before the shows, and they will be $6 for students and $8 for adults.
